"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

"Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education." - Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh

"The uprooting of identity is seen by the noble ones as pleasurable; but this contradicts what the whole world sees." (Snp 3.12)

"To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead" - Thomas Paine

Not really, Mike, except perhaps for nitpicking ninnies like me. The eva in the first seclusion formula is of some significance since it is an emphatic, and decides if the cosmological counterpart of jhāna is -

(1) psychological (ie one is more intensely secluded from desire than the other 4 Hindrances) or
(2) cognitive (what kind of sense data is one secluded from).

Both the Vsm and the Vimuttimagga noticed this anomaly and both struggled with very unsatisfactory replies.
